I often think over this topic and have read quite a few threads on ATS about it - one recent one being about people having been reported dead, only to
be alive again a few years/months later ie: Morgan Freeman (I know he has been hoaxed a few times, he's just an example of what I am trying to
portray). Sorry I have no link to the thread.
Richard Griffiths - The guy who played a cop in Pie in the sky and was a wizard in Harry Potter.
I used to watch Pie in the sky with my Mum when I was younger (very early teens if memory serves). It stopped being aired because Richard Griffiths
died... then the guy miraculously appeared in Harry Potter - WTF! I will never understand this but I
remember it happening. NOW HE'S DEAD
AGAIN! When will he come back?
I think a possibility could be that because you may not have witnessed something for a while your memory of it has worn off and others' more recent
memories of the same object/person in question replace what you used to "know".
You said that you hadn't seen the girl for over a year and now she appears different.
Your memory of her was that she was obviously physically augmented - and now she isn't.
Is it possible that all those people that have been in contact with her over that year have "remembered" her in a different light and that in itself
has actually made her into something "different" (going along the lines of mass consciousness) and not a case of switching realities.
I think this can apply to all of the aforementioned cases;
The highway that now seems foreign
- Has it been a while since you drove down this route?
Think of all the millions of people that have driven down there that now remember it slightly different, or have made new memories of it for the first
time. Have their memories and perceptions molded it into something different that you simply don't recognise when searching through your own memory
The tap that now has cold water in the middle;
- Do you use the tap frequently or does your family use it more than you do and "remember" the
cold water being in the middle?
If it is only you that remembers that the cold was not in the middle versus 2-3 other people remembering it is in the middle your memories of it are
going to be overwritten in time, no?
I hope that makes sense.
